The contradiction in evidence given to the Public Accounts Committee over financial mismanagement at the Garda Training College in Templemore has been described as unbelievable.
Commissioner Noirín O’Sullivan told the committee she learnt of irregularities during a ‘brief’ exchange over a cup of tea.
However the Garda’s HR head says they held a detailed two hour discussion on the matter.
Tipperary TD Alan Kelly chaired yesterdays meeting of the PAC – he says the evidence given left a lot of unanswered questions.
The Commissioner and her team will be brought back before the committee in the coming months for a progress report.
